Finding French and Francophone Special Collections

Many institutions in the United States and Canada have very strong French and Francophone collections. In 2017, CRL’s Collaborative Initiative for French Language Collections (CIFNAL) Collection Development Working Group had the pleasure to work with an intern from ENSSIB, who created a database and map of these collections. Click on the Collections menu above to see a list of collections with detailed descriptions in English. Click on the Map menu to visualize the locations of the many institutions represented in the database.
